RIDING ON TRAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 19 August 1892

RIDING ON tRATI. roinaN on trail is an undertaking requir. ing the natural talent of a trapper, and some of tihe astuteness of a commander ; adroit. ness, firmness, a quick eye, and a quicker hand with a revolver. Great mountains have to be crossed ; vast stretches of dreary plains have to be traversed ; rivers full of dangerous quicksands, in which whole herds have been known to perish, and streams given to terrifically sudden freshets must be forded ; loug expanses of barren alkaline desert, where for forty or fifty miles not a drop of precious water is to be fdund, must be Ipasse over-- nd all this with a crowd of semi-wild cattle, straight from their piatless holce, unaceuetomed to the sight of human beings, and easily startled into a general stampede. Tlhunderstorms, the chief danger through thel sallncer montlla in these regions. are very terrifying to cattle. On the approach of one, the herd should be collected in as small a space us Imssible, whilst the men should co,,tinual...

YeaL 1Ienls. Another creamery is talked of at Glenurn, where there are plenty of cows, good land. and a climate for dairying second to none in Victoria. The settlers should meet todetlar and talk it over. That is the best way to begin the good work. General regret was expressed on all sides when it became known yesterday that MAr. John Drysdale had died the previouls evening at his residence, " In the Dell," Yellow Creek. He arrived in the colony about 40 years ago, and his brother followed him to years afterwards.

ROTHSCHILD OUTWITTED. Astoseo the various admirable productions of taste which the guests of Baron Roths child never fail to admire is a magnificent service of porcelain, of singular beauty, elegance of shape and finish, and remarkable for the artistic richness of its paintings. The way in which the Baron became pus sesoed of it is worth relating. One day an old man, careworn, wrinkled, feeble, and spparently tottering on the verge of the grave, presented himself before M. de Rothschrlild soliciting the honour of an interview. Tihe old marn was so gecd, so poor, and lhad altogether so dejected an aspect that the Baron was innrediately impressed withll a comprlsiorate feeling towards rim, which fcclimno b-c.rue one of lively interest oai learning lthat lie wasi- a Jew.

A PHANTOM AT CHESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 19 August 1892

A PHANTOM AT CHESS. Bome years ago I related a part of the following incident in a daily paper; but even a writer's self-esteem fails to con vince me that, in the form in which it appeared, it found many readers. Just now tile prominenceo of Ilinldism in the mysteries of the occult makes it more to the point. It was long ago in India. I was con nected with the British press as war ca- respondent, and also, to someo extent, with the Government. I was in Bolmbay, engagled upon a secret Governmlcit clmnlis.ion, and was. being entertained by a wealthy atlive, occupying a two-storey blhrgalmrw in tit most arislo cratic quarter of 3Malahar Hlill. lie was entirely ignolant, however, concernilg my mission, as my only hope of success lay in absoluto secrecy. iy uwn rront was as secl:deid as lpossible.
